Privacy Policy

Industry Insider takes the privacy of its users seriously. We are committed to safeguarding the privacy of our users while providing a personalised and valuable service. If you have any requests concerning your personal information or any queries with regard to these practices please contact us at

Signing up to this service does not result in unsolicited, junk or 'spam' mail nor does it result in adware or spyware.

Your credit card details are handled securely by our partner Worldpay and Industry Insider cannot access them or misuse them.

We enable you to remain informed if any of these terms and conditions or privacy policies change. In the case that you no longer accept any revised conditions you will be able to unsubscribe from the service at no further cost. 

What data is collected
Industry Insider is under certain legal obligations towards you in the way we deal with any data we collect on our users. We will collect the information fairly and let you know how we will use it.

The information that you provide about yourself to Industry Insider will only be used for the effective administration of the Site and to communicate with you. This does not apply to third party sites. Industry Insider will adhere to current UK legislation and aim to meet current Internet best practice.

From time to time, you will be asked to submit personal information about yourself, on a voluntary basis (e.g. name, company name and email address etc) in order to receive or use services on our website. 

We reserve the right to track and monitor newsletters and magazines sent to users. Unauthorised forwarding to others may result in a subscription being withdrawn without refund. 

Industry Insider does not keep any financial details at all. All credit / debit card details are stored by our financial partner Worldpay. No financial details can be accessed through the Record of the Day site.

How we use the data
At a later date we may offer you the opportunity to participate in surveys carried out by Industry Insider to help our research into the types of service we offer.

We may use information in aggregate form (so that no individual user is identified):

  • to build up marketing profiles
  • to aid strategic development
  • to manage our relationship with advertisers and
  • to audit usage of the site

With whom do we share the data
We may analyse and disclose aggregate data, as set out in the section above, to advertisers and other reputable businesses but we will not include any identifying information about individual subscribers. We may disclose information to business partners and sponsors but will notify you if this is to happen and will only collect information for this purpose with your express consent.

We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as you use the service you have requested, and remove it in the event that the purpose has been met. We will ensure that all personal information supplied is held securely, in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998.

Your financial transactions with Worldpay are secure and direct; Industry Insider does not store any credit card information on this site and cannot therefore misuse your credit card details.

You have the right to request a copy of the personal information Industry Insider holds about you and to have any inaccuracies corrected. Please address requests to
